A person with BDD wouldn't take so many photos of him/herself to put up in public; that's completely opposed to the BDD persona. You may have self-esteem issues and concern about personal appearance, but I'd say it is nowhere along the lines of BDD.

Right that makes sense. I put up pictures in my gallery and albums a lot. I am trying to track what happens to my face and it seems to remind me to do that. Also, I want to share with people if my treatments are working, because it may work for them too.
